ART & FILM
"Everything you can imagine
is real" - Pablo Picasso
Connections and community can be celebrated through the combining of the arts. Unfortunately, in more recent times the arts have often been compartmentalized - keeping the museum and the concert hall as far apart from one another as possible.
A creative visionary, Jeffrey Hoover has devoted more than three decades to combining music with art. These works can be appreciated separately, in galleries and concerts, or together in performances where the audience can both see and hear the artistic commentary at the same time.
His instrumental and vocal music is combined with his paintings. These paintings represent sound through the use of water-based and mixed media approaches. Images of the paintings can be projected in performances.
